WRONG POLICY….

By David Vance On March 26th, 2015 at 9:22 am

I think this policy is the wrong way around.

Not enough is being done to prevent people leaving the UK to join Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, a group of MPs has warned. Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, said Britain must win their “hearts and minds”. (Hahahaha)

The committee’s report comes as the BBC launches a database tracking British jihadists in Syria and Iraq. It shows that many people left in clusters from certain UK areas – often due to friendships and peer groups. The MPs’ report argued that preventative work with communities, families and international partners was “vital” and needs to be a top priority for the Home Office.

I think the Government should indeed be doing much more – to ENCOURAGE wannabe Jihadi to leave the UK. Let’s get the enemy within OUT! Once they leave we should ensure they never come back.

IT’S THE 1930’S ALL OVER AGAIN…

By David Vance On March 26th, 2015 at 9:16 am

I thought this was disturbing news.

A prominent Jewish figure has compared anti-Semitism in Europe to what it was like in the 1930s, saying that European Jews are living in “fear” once again. World Jewish Congress (WJC) president Ronald Lauder urged the United States to beware of a surge of anti-Semitism on the continent at congressional committee in Washington on Tuesday, the AFP news agency reported. He said that events such as the recent attacks in France and Copenhagen highlighted a new and growing threat driven by radical Islam sweeping across Europe.

Correct. Europe has imported MILLIONS of muslims and they seem to have a great dislike of Jewish people for reasons unknown….

YEMEN…

By David Vance On March 26th, 2015 at 9:14 am

It’s hard to recall that only a few short months ago, Obama was hailing Yemen as a template of his successful strategy to counter terrorism abroad… and now..

Saudi Arabia has launched air strikes in Yemen against Shia Houthi rebels, the Saudi ambassador in the US has said. Adel al-Jubeir said Saudi Arabia acted to “defend the legitimate government” of President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi. Supporters of President Hadi say that they recaptured Aden airport on Thursday after heavy fighting with forces allied to Houthi fighters. The Iran-backed rebels have made rapid gains in recent months. They have forced Mr Hadi to flee the capital Sanaa.

So, the great Sunni vs Shia civil war at the heart of Islam continues. It’s hard to say which evil regime will win but the one thing that is clear that Obama’s policy lies in shreds.

Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore

It sounds impossible that the same man could be a much trusted friend and confidante to both US Presidents and the Chinese Communist leadership over the past few decades, but there was such a man. His name was Lee Kuan Yew. He just passed away at the age of 91.

Born a subject of the British empire, he saw the white man retreat in haste when the Japanese invaded. A Japanese soldier made him kneel before him, after which he kicked Lee away. He barely escaped being shot by the Japanese. He was happy to see the back of them, but when the British came back as colonial rulers,that no longer made sense to him.

“… the old mechanisms had gone and the old habits of obedience and respect (for the British) had also gone because people had seen them run away (from the Japanese) … they packed up.

Newly independent Malaysia once included Singapore in it, but the Malaysians expelled Singapore in 1965, largely because it had too many Chinese. Lee was the city state’s Prime Minister from 1959 to 1990.

At the beginning of his rule Singapore was one of the world’s poor nations, at the end of it, it was one of the world’s rich nations. This is not an accident.

He was a really tough guy, partially because he had to be. He outsmarted and outmaneuvered the Communists in his country. He had zero tolerance for any ethnic or religious troublemaking in a complicated small nation of ethnic Chinese, Malays, Indians, Buddhists, Muslims and Christians.
He suppressed the press, no question about it.

But he guided the rise of a now wealthy city state that works really well, one that its people are very proud of.

Singapore has long welcomed foreign investment. It treats them well, so foreign companies stay and invest more.

Singapore’s GDP per capita is much higher than that of the US. Germany or Japan. It’s schools, public transit, airport, roads are among the best in the world. The crime is almost too low to measure. ( Gun ownership is all but unknown.) By all accounts, corruption is very low.

Deng Xiaoping of China essentially stole Lee’s playbook – economic liberalization in an authoritarian political state. After which, much of China got rich.

Lee welcomed the rise of China, but also encouraged the US to maintain a strong military presence in east Asia.

This was a deeply pragmatic man, who like many great men, doesn’t fit into any mold. He was sincerely socialist, capitalist, pro Chinese, pro American at the same time. He, like Deng, didn’t care if the cat was black or white, so long as it caught the mice.

In the above video, from 1967, he is interviewed on American national TV. He tries to counsel America to see where it has gone so incredibly wrong in the then raging Vietnam war. He resists attempts to send any of his troops into Vietnam.

He met LBJ around the time of this interview, but I doubt that he was listened to, the way that Nixon, and Deng listened very closely to him.

BERGDAHL CHARGED WITH DESERTION

 

CLARKSON CRASHES OUT OF THE BBC

By Pete Moore On March 25th, 2015 at 7:20 pm

More reasons to avoid the telly tax …

JEREMY CLARKSON has been booted out of the BBC then. It’s a kind-of-but-not-quite sacking for the Top Gear presenter. His contract was up next week and the BBC has decided not to renew it. Already on a final warning for being a bloke, his final crime was to punch a producer. I dunno, maybe if he kiddie fiddled he’d have got a pay rise.

top-gear-title

If you live in Islington, wear sandles and read The Grauniad, you’ll say it’s high time this Right Wing, xenophobic oaf got his comeuppance. If you’re normal, you’ll say the BBC just wrecked the best thing on TV and the most successful programme – in the wuuulrd. (D’ya see what I did there?)

So that’s about 50 per cent of my telly watching gone. I last switched on the TV on Sunday evening to watch BBC2’s very fine “Six Nations Greatest Moments”. It was actually very good, despite the naff title, and I recommend it on iPlayer for anyone who wants to see what it’s all about. I’ll probably next switch it on for Match of the Day on Saturday night. Top Gear was the one thing I absolutely had to watch, and now we’ll have a Somali lesbian test driving hybrids. Or something. There’s no point in replacing Clarkson. The magic of the show was the chemistry between him, May and Hammond. Without one it won’t work. It was good while it lasted, but now it’s done.

A CALEDONIAN VENEZUELA?

By David Vance On March 25th, 2015 at 10:27 am

Some interesting squeaking from the Scottish separatists this morning;

“The SNP would block a minority Conservative government by voting down its Queen’s Speech if it held the post-election balance of power, its former leader Alex Salmond has said. Mr Salmond said the move could bring down the government if Labour joined in, with David Cameron “locked out”. The Conservatives accused the ex-SNP leader of “trying to sabotage the democratic will of the British people”. Labour has called his balance of power prediction “bluster and bluff”.

The SNP are determined to stop the Conservative Party forming a Government this May. Quite how this would work is inexplicable but it betrays an SNP mindset driven by hatred of an English population which consistently prefers Conservative values.

In 2010, 10.7 million people voted Conservative, In 2010, 491,000 people voted SNP.

The SNP are a cancer on the UK body politic and I am increasingly of the view that we may need to cut it out. Either close down the Scottish Parliament (and the other devolved Assemblies) and restore all power to the mother of Parliaments or consider allowing the Separatists to go their own way in some way. Keeping them in the UK is simply not worth it and it is toxic.

Most curiously, the SNP want to leave “Westminster” rule so they can be be ruled by Brussels. I think they should go, they should not be allowed to use a Bank of England underwritten British Pound , they should not be allowed to keep our Monarch, and they should not be allowed to claim ownership of BRITISH oil. Let them become Venezuela, but with midges instead of sunshine. In the end, like Venezuela, they will run out of toilet paper, and come BEGGING back to us. At that point, we should decide why we would want them back for good.

GANGSTA TIME

By David Vance On March 25th, 2015 at 10:14 am

Duggan-566171

Interesting to read that a police watchdog has cleared an officer who shot dead suspected gangster Mark Duggan, sparking the 2011 riots that rocked Britain. Duggan was shot in August 2011 when he was in a taxi stopped by police in north London. Two days later relatives and (sic) residents marched on Tottenham police station, triggering a wave of riots and an orgy of violence across Britain.

Let’s get it right. If you are a gangster and drive around carrying illegal firearms, it’s probably not going to end too well. Those who used this gangsters death to rob and wreck are just an opportunistic feral underclass.

 

….and here isn’t the news; rehashed once again, by our experts at the scene!

By Mike Cunningham On March 25th, 2015 at 9:54 am

I listened this morning to what must have been the ultimate example of wasted oxygen ever demonstrated on the BBC; and that, knowing the outpourings of hot air from that same BBC, must be some target to set.

We all must be saddened by the crash of the Germanwings passenger jet, especially as we were shown the first pictures of the shredded fuselage as it lay strewn over the rocks and sand of those Alpine  ridges. Of course the relatives must be bemused and crushed by the loss of their relations; their friends, their brothers, fathers, wives and sisters.

But did we have to listen to a BBC reporter on the Today Programme spouting out hundreds of words as he described some helicopters taking off as they joined the search as daylight broke over that small Alpine town? He went on, and on, shouting his silly script over the noise of the helicopter blades as those machines gained height; completing his allotted two-odd minutes of reflected glory as he reported how the crash teams went up into the mountains.

Add to that, the complete waste of breathable gas used by the so-called experts who, drafted in, no doubt at great expense onto the newsrooms of the BBC, ITV, Sky and everyone else; dispensed their views about what had gone wrong, what could have gone wrong, and what will go wrong in the future, to an audience who probably had switched to another channel about five seconds into the whole ghastly farrago where lots of talking heads dispensed their brand of saying absolutely nothing about the crash at all. Add to that charge the simple truth that until the crash investigators get to decipher all of the data stored on the flight recorders; NO-ONE knows what really happened!

Sometimes; I really do despair!

 

HEAVENS ABOVE!

By David Vance On March 24th, 2015 at 4:26 pm

I loved this story…

An undertaker in Germany passed out in shock when a coffin lid slid open and the woman inside groaned: “Where am I?” The 92-year-old lady had been pronounced dead hours earlier at a retirement home in the city of Gelsenkirchen and taken to the Munstermann funeral parlour. But when the funeral director recovered from passing out he saw the old woman lying in the coffin groaning with both eyes open.

I hope he didn’t charge her!
